Our department provides a rich learning experience for students interested in the social sciences. We offer a major in Sociology with either a Public Sociology or General Sociology option.  We also offer a major in Criminology with the option to choose a Criminology or Criminal Justice concentration. In addition, we offer minors in both Sociology and Criminology.  See our MA program webpage for more information about our Master’s in Sociology and Criminology.For important information about majors, including degree requirements, course descriptions, and admissions requirements, go to these links to view the Sociology, Criminology, or Master’s Program pages.
